This is a unique opportunity to purchase one of Bega's historic gems. Bismarck House, built in 1876, is located on a generous triple sized block of 3,079m2 with 360 degrees views of beautiful Bega.

This heritage listed property has maintained most of its original features, complimented by a full renovation in 2009. The house boasts the original facade as well as polished hardwood timber floors, 12-foot pressed metal ceilings, stained glass doors and sash hung painted timber windows, turned verandah posts and frieze spindles, wide moulded skirtings and architraves. Many of the original Victorian fixtures and fittings have been retained.

Most recently Bismarck House has been operating as a high-end licensed restaurant, café and function centre with a fully equipped commercial kitchen. With liquor licence in place and off street parking for 20 cars, this would also be ideal for a high-end bed and breakfast.

Or perhaps your dream is to own a stately open plan home and enjoy the luxury space. There is the potential for up to six bedrooms, including a separate one-bedroom studio above the garage. Bismarck House will reward you and your guests with its historical charm, beauty and location.

Bega has a new hospital, university, shopping precinct and the site is only 15 minutes from uncrowded beaches. If you're looking for the perfect lifestyle escape, the opportunity for this property are endless. Current zoning potential for multiple commercial uses under existing DA or R2 Residential Zoning (STCA).
